Admission for IB1 (11th grade)
Teksti: 

A student who has successfully completed the SYK preparatory year will move on to IB1. If a student’s teachers determine that he/she does not have the necessary aptitude to be successful in the IB programme, the student can continue his/her studies in SYK’s Finnish section towards the Finnish Matriculation Examination (although this requires a good knowledge of the Finnish language). This also applies to students who decide not to continue with the IB programme at the end of the preparatory year.

 

Students applying for admission without having taken the preparatory year can be admitted, if places are still available. Applicants from abroad should note that SYK is a day school, and the school does not provide any boarding facilities. All admitted students should have a legal guardian with them in Finland.

 

Applicants to IB1 must

  1. send a Student Application for Admission/IB1 form to SYK by March 12th, 2019 and
  2. send an Appraisal of the Applicant to the IB Programme/IB1 form to SYK by the same deadline. This form must be completed and signed by the applicant’s current head teacher, English teacher, and homeroom teacher. Special attention is paid to the applicant’s marks in English, the mother tongue/first language, and mathematics.
  3. send a copy of their latest school report to SYK together with their application form, and a copy of their spring term school report as soon as they receive it.
  4. In some cases a phone interview may be arranged. (No entrance exam)
